Coaching Philosophy

As a choreographer, I truly enjoy teaching skaters about the art of performance and learning how to express themselves on ice as well as in their routines. Finding their own personal creative style is key to their own success as a skating performer. My goal is to guide each skater to grow and develop their creative side and most importantly learn the true artistic side of figure skating.
